's trip to india was going to cost $2 billion. and he had let it go. he did a wonderful thing, anderson cooper. he'd be constructed the whole story, showed how it began with an unnamed indian official. as if an unnamed indian official would have any idea what the president's trip was going to cost and involved 32 naval ships. this thing was crazy. so he did constructed the whole story. i thought it was so good, i got a transcript and i wrote a column on it, giving him a shout out for doing it. the next day i was giving a talk to the honor society. the first thing a young man said at the table is, did you know obama's trip was going to cost a billion dollars? and i said, did not see anderson cooper? i tell this whole story in the book. and michele bachmann just announced for the presidency. that is utterly irresponsible. >> let me talk about the role of new media. in that case, for example, you can argue that it was because of the internet that spread that story, but even before anderson cooper, there were self correcting mechanisms on the internet. do you think the internet is increasin

is responsible for a deadly triple bombing in mumbai, india that killed 17 people. the simultaneous bombings in three separate neighborhoods described as a coordinated terror attack. 131 other people are hurt. 23 critically. investigators believe it may be revenge for police pressure on home grown terrorists. this morning, four people are dead after a homicide bomber attacked a memorial service for the half brother of afghanistan president hamid karzai. 15 others were hurt in this attack on a kandahar mosque. wally karzai was assassinated on tuesday. he was shot at close range, apparently by a confidant. the taliban has claimed responsibility for his murder. thousands paid their respects for an 8-year-old boy murdered in his brooklyn, new york, neighborhood. he went missing monday on his way home from camp. yesterday, his dismembered body was discovered in a local man's apartment. levi aaron has been arrested and charged with the boy's murder after he confessed to smothering them. the neighbors said they were suspicious of aaron belong before this incident. nbc finally issuing a formal apolo
from developing countries which are america's friends such as india, bangladesh, the philippines and indonesia. the outcry in those countries would be loud and politically damaging. so long as the u.s.-led international community is unwilling to either intervene or engage on land in somalia, then the payment of ransom will remain the only way that hostages can be brought home. my final point that is if yemen was to fail, maritime disaccord in this region would worsen considerably. if both side of the gulf of aden were to become launch for potentially terrorist attacks, it is possible that ship operators would demand a much higher level of naval protection. if that was not forthcoming, they may seek alternative routes which would add to the cost of boast finished goods -- both finished goods and raw material including oil and gas. economic development will crowd out islamist extremism as effectively as it will undermine piracy. once again, mr. chairman, thank you for the opportunity to be here today. i'm happy to answer any questions you might have. >> thank you very much for your

for the shareholders of the east india tea company. there's the government being oppressive, the parliament, and i think it's important to understand what the revolution was about for many ordinary patriots was this effort to set up governments of their own, that their problem was that their governments lacked the power to protect the people and promote their prosperity, and that to understand the movement soully as antigovernment is to understand it really halfway and partly from the point of view of thee most well to do who are always the ones who can do without less government, and not from the point of view of the many people who made the revolution happen. thank you.
